In early celebration of Valentine’s Day, I thought I would show you one of my love letters! Don’t be too excited it’s far from salacious!
How I miss the pre-Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) ability that I had to utilize you my multitasking friend. I was basically a professional multitasker because I worked for years as a project manager in advertising and marketing. I could send a scolding email to an art director missing deadlines while answering the phone in my calm and professional voice only moments after being yelled at by an account executive for not predicting something was going to happen to slow down the timeline. I did all this while drinking a cup of coffee and looking pretty relaxed. Now post-TBI me can’t multitask at all. If I am watching TV and you interrupt me and ask a question I might answer with information about the TV show and not actually answer your question. My parents preface things with “Don’t get upset…” when asking me questions (even if they’re stupid technology questions). Old me would have answered your question, watched the TV show and it never would have occurred to anyone that I would get upset.
I just want to let you know that even though I took you for granted multitasking, I truly love and miss you.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
This is my silly way of explaining that my attention has been elsewhere (not on this blog and not on pop culture which I was supposed to write about this week). I have been preparing materials to submit to a publication and along with an essay (totally in my wheelhouse) I did a computer illustration (NOT in my wheelhouse). I have also been creating Valentine’s cards (more in my wheelhouse). So needless to say my little TBI brain is tired and overworked because I can no longer multitask (sigh).
I hope you have a fun Valentine’s Day and if you don’t have a sweetheart check out pictures of my little sweetheart @selbysweetie on Instagram.

I have been creating the computer illustration I mentioned earlier yet I have still been doodling.
